Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 25.916 billion Anti-Goatsackians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Law & Order and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,837 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 148,076 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and loans are available for students from poor families. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 3,720th in Balder and 117,321st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -10 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
